    • Cancer Free, The Way to Be January 17, 2008
      More proof that beer is good for you.  Researchers in Germany say that a cancer-fighting substance found in hops could be enhanced to brew a special anti-cancer beer. I don’t think I’ve read a better story all year. I know the year is young, but the only news that could be better would be “Drinking […]
    • Flaming Shot January 10, 2008
      The flaming shot. It’s an amateur move for sure, but it looks cool. The problem is that a lot of people don’t know how to take this shot. They can make it, and light it on fire and that’s where their “smartness” ends. Example 1 This dude is not smart. And the chick that says […]

    • About Bloody Time January 2, 2008
      After a night of hard drinking you will wake up either drunk or hung-over. Being drunk is not the problem, it’s the coming down from being drunk and being hung-over that is the problem. The solution; a Bloody Mary. There are 3 types of morning drinkers. There is the person who drinks a Bloody Mary, a […]
    • DWI of the Year January 1, 2008
      Here at Don’t Eat the Worm we don’t condone drinking and driving. It is a dumb and reckless move that can cost not only you your life but an innocent person. (Not saying you’re guilty.) BUT Meagan Harper is now a god in DWI/DUI circles. She was busted in Oregon with a .55 BAC. The […]

Gotta Have Faith, Maybe…

I just read this.

WESTON, Wis. — An 11-year-old girl died after her parents prayed for healing rather than seek medical help for a treatable form of diabetes, police said Tuesday.

Yes, you read that correctly. Instead of getting medicine, the parents just prayed and this poor girl died.


Praying for people doesn’t help them! I don’t care if you get the Pope to do it, it will not work. You fanatics are crazy.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against religion. Just because I don’t believe in all of that hocus pokus doesn’t mean that other people can’t. But when you don’t take your kid to the doctor because you think that praying for them is going to help them get better you’ve crossed the line.

I try not to write about religion because people are to fanatical about it and freak out and post or email me crazy messages. Listen, I don’t care about your religion. I really don’t. If this story would have been about parents who just stared at their kid thinking that brain waves would heal her I would be just as mad about it.

The real question is, should these parents go to prison for this? They are investigating this right now. Personally I think they should. They are supposed to keep their child safe and well and they failed and should be punished.

What is your opinion on this story? Do you think the parents should be punished?

  1. I am not a religious person AT ALL. I believe when someone prays, they should be asking their God how/what they can do or for the strength to carry out what they already know to do… not pray that he “fixes” it FOR them. Wouldn’t he want us to help ourselves? Does that make sense??

    This is all a very gray area.

    On one hand, I think what they did could be considered abuse but on the other, should they be punished when have to live knowing they did nothing for their child when she needed them the most?

  2. Except for when you fly right? Haha.

    I know what you’re saying.

    In the story, the mother still thinks that the child can be resurected. So I don’t think living with it would be much of a problem for her.

  3. EXACTLY! haha 🙂

    Oh wow. She is a fucking nut.

  4. I agree that the parents are bonkers and should most certainly be punished for neglect. I’m surprised the story says that the other children weren’t removed from the home, even if they are teenagers.

    Reading this story it occurred to me that if the same situation were to happen about 500 years ago, it would be entirely reversed — parents who gave their daughter a “potion” of insulin that could save her but neglected to consult the local priest because they believed that praying would make no difference would be burned at the stake.

    I’m glad times have changed.

  5. I do believe that prayer is a powerful thing. BUT, it is retarded to pray for healing and then not let doctors do their thing, especially when God’s answer to the prayer was the doctors that would heal her. Make sense? Pray for something, but make sure your eyes are open for the answer.

  6. Man, I laughed out loud when I read that blurb. Does that make me a bad person? Oh well, so what. Hilarious.

    People are awesome.

  7. Life in prison would be far too kind for these delusional fuckbubbles.

  8. Jimsmuse – Yeah times have changed, but they peaked a long time ago.

    Adam – I pray for a million dollars every night. Heh. It never works.

    Bronson – Well, you’re just as bad as I am then.

    Evyl – I couldn’t agree more.

  9. the parents shouldn’t be punished.
    No, they should be killed. Period.
    Highly explosive grenades inserted in the anal cavity would work.

  10. Who is putting the grenades up there? Not me, I’ll tell you that much.

  11. Well if the parents were normal people they would feel guilty over the fact that they single handedly killed their own flesh and blood. However these are not normal people so i guess they’ll have to repent for their sins with god?

    Personally i say put them in jail.
